### Architecture support to boost NTL?

I would like to discuss possible extensions of processors' instruction set to boost various NTL algorithms.

Victor, in your latest NTL release there is a "more aggressive" use of Intel's PCLMUL instruction, which is an indication that specific algorithms may benefit from it.

Also, Daniel Bernstein published a relevant post at his weblog recently: http://blog.cr.yp.to/20140517-insns.html.

So, in general, do you see any specific extensions that might be beneficial? In particular, I am interested in extensions for Elliptic Curves algorithms (which are on Victor's wish list).
